Nice campground

We stayed here this past weekend and really enjoyed our stay. The hiking trails are well maintained and easy to follow! We were able to kayak through a lot of water areas as well! The park rents canoes for people to use if you don’t have your own. We got to experience the Dutch Oven Society, which was GREAT!! If you are ever at a camp ground and they are around, you should check out their demonstration and sample all the great food they cook! The RV site was big enough for our bumper pull, but there was a large tree on the site that kept us from being able to put out the awning. Thankfully it was a nice weekend so it wasn’t missed. Also, the fire pit and picnic table was close to the road. We found it oddly placed. All the sites seemed to have tent pads and plenty of shade. Definitely bring some mosquito spray and citronella candles. The water everywhere brings them out! All in all, o would recommend this park! We had a great time and will go back!

Clean and easy

Very nice park. Well manicured and right across from the beach.

Friendly People and Great Location

We really have enjoyed our stay here. My husband has fished in the back pond nearly every day and has always been successful. There's a library literally across the street from the campground and a Dollar General a quarter mile down the road. There's several activities, a hot tub and indoor swimming pool. The laundry facilities are reasonably priced and actually work, unlike some campgrounds we've been to. The staff is very knowledgeable of the area, as well, and directed us to Wilson's Kountry Korner, the best little cajun kitchen we've eaten at.

Lake Side Large park

This is a busy weekend park within 2 miles of Morgan City, LA. It sits on the edge of a large freshwater lake and has great views. Many sites appear to be Big Rig Friendly. There are various sections of park to choose from. Easy access to park and paved roads inside park. Includes bathhouses, office area, beach and nice boat ramp with dock space. Not sure of a charge for ramp or docks. The East side of the park is wide open and very easy to access with today’s mega rigs and 5th wheels. A large dog park is walking distance and right along the lakeshore.

Want to camp soon

Kayaked the loop, it has been very rainy, trying to find a middle ground between dry firewood/ground and not being eaten alive by mosquitoes seems tough, but an overall great place to spend a day!

Beautiful sunsets!

The views (and the sunsets) here can’t be beaten and most of the sites were right on the water. If you like to fish and are in a fully contained RV, you might find this place ideal to get away from it all. We travel in a 17-foot campervan, so this does not fit the profile of the type of camping we prefer, however, it was fine for an overnight. 

When we were there, the facility needed some upkeep; we were told they have been trying to fix the problem of water on the floor in the men’s room for a while. There was a noisy sewage treatment plant that detracted from the area. 

The cost was very inexpensive ($14) for an electric hookup site, although there was no visible separation between sites. 

We saw an alligator swimming by in the water that was separated from the campsites by only a short rock wall– yikes! Victor, our campground host, was very friendly and offered great suggestions for our next destination.

Close to Downtown

County equestrian and RV park close to downtown. Stayed here recently while attending an LSU football game. They have a shuttle that provides round trips to the stadium. Nothing fancy about Farr Park, just convenient if you love horses and football.

Great spot in Cajun Country!

This was a great little spot to spend a few days.  We had an amazing time watching the wildlife and enjoying the water in the middle of nowhere Louisiana.  There is a bar not too far away that we enjoyed meeting some locals at.  Our hotspots worked great here to have a productive work week too.  Be careful how you get here though!!  There is a low clearance bridge that takes you over the levee that there is no way an RV would clear.  Be sure to check maps/directions and plan accordingly!!

Great campground

Convenient to Morgan City, pull through & back in., sunny & shady, great museum featuring aviation, shrimping industry, and Louisiana sawmill industry, Wifi, sewage hookup, water hookup, available for short or long stay. Neatly kept by Parrish. Ball fields, horse shoes.
